Social networks grow up in a world web very rapidly. There is the main reason of increasing time, people spend in the Internet. Social networks allow users to declare about their interests, to share them with others and build up relations with interesting people. However the most popular networks like Face book in fact became an alternative (and may be - logical continuation) to bore dating services appeared on the start of Internet era.
Anonymity or partial anonymity of social networks participants is one of the factors which make them popular all over the world. A participant publishes only that part of information about himself which he (she) considers necessary or reasonable to report and this allows to change the personality in the eyes of other users. The aspiration of people to look better is fully natural and easily explainable from the point of psychology. In a greater degree this is women's feature. But also many men in the Internet in general, and in social networks in particular are often sinned on this. In fact adorning yourself it is possible to keep more attention to the profile extending the communication circle this way, increasing an informative exchange that is the final goal of participants of any social network. Thus they couldn't avoid one of wide spread "illness" of dating sites. We are talking about the anonymity & at times publishing deliberately falsified personal information!

To discuss this issue, support groups of various dating sites and social networks organize forums and plan to start finding fraudsters and doubles. But we consider this problem differently when we speak about money and celebrities. For example, being able to download photos of the stars from the Internet, even if they are not very popular.
And if user is looking for virtual communication he/she can easy reach the goal through dating sites & social networks. But if you want to continue such relationship in real life, such approach very often could play a wicked joke. Evident disparity between the real person and virtual character, destruction of the illusions created by imagination on the base of false personal information (in particular visual - here we mean putting in personal profiles photo images of other people) are perceived negatively and sometimes could cause harshly emotional displays. Many companies, which try to protect copyrights of their pictures, start active war with scammers and ask everyone about sending signals to the support services.
